Beasts of the Southern Wild @BeastsTheMovie

I went to the Press screening of The Beasts of the Southern Wild yesterday and it was an amazing emotional journey. I had no idea what to expect but the casting was incredible and the story was easy to follow. With a high rating of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes – this film is destined to be a fan favorite.

Check out the preview below:

In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions. — (C) Fox Searchlight
